[dgw at localhost Google SketchUp 8]$ wine SketchUp
err:winediag:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo Direct rendering is disabled, most likely your OpenGL drivers haven't been installed correctly

Reinstall your graphics driver, and make sure you have 32 bit OpenGL installed. Also, since you are on Fedora, make sure you have 32 bit Wine installed, too. If you have both 64 and 32 bit Wine installed, you may have to use  WINEARCH=win32 to create a 32 bit only wineprefix. Or, you could uninstall 64 bit Wine entirely and use only 32 bit; unless you have a 64 bit app you're trying to run, there is no need for 64 bit Wine.

That could be your problem. My card is Nvidia. Intel graphics hardware and Linux drivers are both poor. The one thing you can do is make sure you have the 2.16.0 Intel driver, as that version fixed a bug that caused serious problems with UI rendering, not just in Wine, but Wine was particularly affected by it.

1.3.31 came out yesterday and the crashing-on-start bug is fixed, so if you're going to build Wine yourself I'd recommend that version.
